as adults. they're facing 20, 40 years depending on how many charges are stacked against them. >> it almost seems like they were feeding off each other in this video. how damaging is that video to a judge, to a jury seeing that and how brutal it was? >> that's exactly right. and it's not just that some of them are throwing punches. but it's that encouraging. there's something in the law called party to a crime. basically it means in for a penny, in for a pound. so even if -- we saw a defense attorney saying on there, but my client didn't throw any punches. but if your client stood there and encouraged and aided and abetted and cheered them on, they are just as responsible, under the law. and they can also be charge with the crime of aggravated assault and get up to 20 years if that's what the judge thinks is appropriate. >> how about a defense attorney saying, okay, my client is one of these girls, she's 16 years old, no priors, still she's facing that much time, it's that severe? >> it is because aggravated assault has a range, like every crime.
